Inspire others with your interests

The roles we have available now at Coughton Court are ‘customer focussed’ and will suit people who like a fast paced environment and who have a natural enthusiasm with an energy and a desire to make an experience memorable; yet it is equally as important to help visitors feel relaxed, whilst enjoying a really warm, friendly and authentic welcome everywhere they go.  And even when things don’t quite go to plan you will always have a positive outlook and visitors will feel that you have done everything you reasonably can to resolve things.  These roles support visitor facing teams including areas such as reception, membership, café and the entrance to the historic family home.

Volunteering opportunities available include full days and part days with a variety of start times.  Because we operate an on-line rota you can plan your volunteering to match your availability.

Contact us on 01789 400777 or coughtoncourt@nationaltrust.org.uk with any questions or to arrange to come in and talk about volunteering.

Lizzie, one of our room volunteers, tells us her role is great for fuelling her interest in Tudor History. She started by visiting Coughton Court, fell in love with the place and  then joined us as a volunteer.

As a bonus she also meets lots of nice people, visitors, volunteers and staff who are all appreciative of her time and the information she shares.

Rosemarie loves to interact with visitors on a personal level by selling raffle tickets. She feels she is helping in a direct way as the money you give directly benefits Coughton Court. 
 
She says “A little bit of the stained glass window is because of my efforts”.
